Every Australian 3D TV we've reviewed this year
If you're in Australia, you've got maybe half a dozen big brands to choose a 3D TV from. We've looked at a whole stack — here's our list of every Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, LG, Sharp or Toshiba 3D TV we've reviewed this year.
Samsung Series 8 (UA55D8000)
The Samsung Series 8 (UA55D8000) 3D LED TV is one of the best panels on the market for watching Full HD content. The level of detail it can display from a high quality source is excellent. It's also packed full of features -- even if some of them aren't quite up to scratch -- and has an excellent design. If you can afford to spend the coin it's a quality product, even though some of its integrated Web features aren't as well implemented as we were hoping.
Samsung Series 8 (PS64D8000)
The 2011 edition of Samsung's Series 8 plasma is, as we'd expected, an impressive piece of technology. Its sound and visuals are great, and the inclusion of various 'Smart TV' features makes the Series 8 a useful multimedia device as well as a traditional TV. The built-in Web browser isn't perfect and we'd definitely prefer a notebook if one was close to hand, and some of the features are a little imperfect, but the Series is is nonetheless a big step forward from the featureless TVs of a couple of years ago.
